Have to say our room attendant, waiters and drink waiter staff of an evening made a trip amazing, nothing was too much of a problem and they went beyond to make a cruise memorable. Overall our cruise was great, ship was spotless, food ... Read more

I was on the Granduer for Christmas just last year. The only difference is that last year RCCL offered 2 week long cruises over the holidays, when this year it was 1 12-day cruise over both Christmas and New Years. Compared to last ... Read more

The quality of the food was meant for people that has never been in a cruise before. For me as a person has taken many cruises dating back to the 1970s in which one of them was the Royal Viking it is quite a shame. Not only the quality ... Read more

The room was very nice and so was our cabin guy. He did a great job. We did not especially care for the food and the deserts was the worst we have experienced. The food on the smaller ships is much better all around. We think they ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise, and our 8th on Royal. We booked within the last couple weeks prior to the cruise as a get-a-way to celebrate my wife's recovery from surgery. Two of our good friends came along, which made for a great long ... Read more

The cruise was very clean, beautifully decorated for the holidays. The quality of food extremely wonderful. Lot of food and in many varieties at all meals. The only thing which did not meet my expectation was entertainment. Lot of time, ... Read more

We decided to try Royal Caribbean Arabian Gulf cruise because the weather in the area would be warm but not to hot at this time of year. The embarkation was not too bad, we arrived in Dubai about 7.30 after an overnight flight from ... Read more

We choose this ship after several rips out of Ft Lauderdale and Oasis was highly rated. Our problems started with a cramped balcony room # 6578, with little storage and a stuck closet door. It took me over one hour to fix the closet that ... Read more

Comedy Show, Headliner show, and the Aqua shows were top notch entertainment. Bingo is a big rip-off, pays back less than 25% of what they take in all rounds before the final round, last bingo nets one large prize for one person. 95% of ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly for the ports of call and we have never been on this class of ship. I was concerned about how they would board 4000 + passengers , but it was actually the fastest and smoothest boarding process we have ever ... Read more

This was my 13th cruise with Royal and what a disappointment. -Windjammer is disgusting. The tongs that you grab your food with are all greasy and oily. There aren't as many choices as there use to be. The windjammer has no change, ... Read more

The Anthem is a beautiful ship. The cabins were of adequate size with plenty of room for storage of clothing or other items. The staterooms were always clean and the shower was larger than on other RC ships that we were on. The food was ... Read more
